Cupcake Disaster!!!

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I had just finished an order of 1 dozen cupcakes, ready to deliver. I set the box on a towel in the front seat so they would be level, strapped my daughter into her carseat, then realized I left my phone inside.

I left the car door open so she could get a breeze and ran back inside. Then I heard my daughter screaming and shreiking. So I ran back to the car, thinking maybe a bee or some bug had flown into the car, but no.......I look inside, and my 70 lb boxer is sitting in the front seat, on top of a smushed cupcake box!

Now....before I get slammed for pets around my baking, my dogs stay outside, in a fenced backyard. Just my luck, he picked that day to dig under the fence icon_eek.gif

If it makes you feel any better one day my hubby let my lab in because it was raining and before I got back to the kitchen (only was gone for 2 or 3 minutes, the precious thing ate my 10" cake that was sitting one the counter about to be stacked up....
Why does something that can be so troublesome, be so calming at the same time?!?!?!?!

OMG I am so sorry. But I had to laugh. Your boxer loves you and just wanted to be with you. We had a dog growing up that licked the frosting off a doll cake when we were at church. I think we all have these stories.

Your post made me remember a half sheet wedding cake with a small tier on top that I had made years ago. The frosting was a crusting buttercream and I had a thin sheet of plastic over it in the back of my van. When I got to the person's house, the front door was still opened while going round to the back of the van to open the hatch. In a blink of an eye, their hyper shepherd dog had jumped into the front seat, made his way to the back and sat on part of the cake. I about had a coronary. We brought it in and thank God it had the plastic over it, but I had pipe frosting into the dents and we used flowers to cover up some other bad spots. I know how you feel and am sorry this happened to you.

I am sorry this happened. I have a boxer and I can see him doing the same thing as he loves to ride.

OMG - I once had an order for 50 sugar cookies covered in fondant... I baked all the cookies,covered them in fondant and left them over night under an isect cover to harden... at the time I was looking after my Dad's chihuahua that stands all of 20cm in height and he had to stay in side which I HATE but anyways I put the cookies up on the table covered only to catch the precious little dear ON the dinning room table having himself a little tea party with my cookies... needless to say he was in soooo much trouble and I have refused to look after him again lol but I was up all night baking the cookies all over again...
